Chick - Female
Lit - Literature

Similar to a chickflick in that it usually attracts a female audience. A chicklit is a story that is usually posted online by a budding (usually female) author on sites such as fictionpress. They are usually romantic, dramatic, and funny. However, chicklit also refers to a book with a similar romantic-comedy theme. No matter how cliche, a good chicklit can be very addicting.
T -Omigoodness did you read that chicklit about the girl who's torn between the jock, the emo bad boy, and her bff!?
